I used to live up in Woodstock NY,but my former mom ran a business and wasnt able to spend as much time with me as she used to. Also, her teenage sons & husband weren't really bird people.So, a friend of a friend new of the situation and called me while I was away in Virginia. I called the owner right then and there and when I returned home made arrangements to meet Bella the next day. Well, it was love at first site and she came home with me. The rest as they say is history.. Awards

Hi! My name is Bella

I am a Congo African Grey from Staten Island, NY.

Bat Girl (I like to hang upside down a lot)sweetie pie

13 years old   F

Congo African Grey

Raw cauliflower,bro- ccoli,grapes,st- rawberries, pine nuts, almonds.I really havent met a food I dont like yet.

Top of the cage & her free standing perch in the kitchen. Or, basically anywhere my Mom is.!

I get annoyed when the big mouth cockatoo, Lola starts yelling for no reason. I tell him to "Be quiet",but he never listens. Not enough time with my Mom. I like to watch TV with her and get my head scratched. I usually have to push Beauty & Lola out of the way.

She loves me unconditionally- .She gives me lots of great things to eat..broccoli, cauliflower,pin- e nuts,almonds,po- megrantes. MMMMMMgood.

I love to hang upside down & swing back & forth in my cage.. Also,my morning greeting to Mom is not"hello" but I love to give a big loud burp in her face!! I laugh like crazy then. It drives her nuts..

Gee, I don;t know- I just love life and have fun in all that I do..

  Beautiful Congo Grey!
It is something to see the full wings of a Grey. We clip our flight feathers and probably miss out on the beauty of the full set they have. But the alternative is worse. I think this picture is beautiful and so here is my vote. Nice to meet you!

Come visit me, Precious, Sunshine,Blue,Cloe, & Blueberry, Charlie Bird, Little Bird, Sunny & Nakita.

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Tuki says hi
Dear Bella, Welcome to the birdchannel! I am a grey in Missouri. Are you buried in lots of snow where you live? I see that upstate NY is getting a LOT of snow right now. Stay warm and watch for spring. That groundhog says it is coming soon.........

Come visit me, Tuki.

  Hi Bella
Bella Bella Bella, Well what do you know?
-I to throw belches and burps at my mom too! My mom didn't think I would pick up that strange long burp that she does when she thinks no one is listening! Well think again, I thought it was soooo neat, I like to repeat it with gusto!
Much smarter than the average parrot!
Come visit...we voted for you!
